Esera Tackles Being A Superstar

This song on last night's The Voice gave me chills.

"Superstar" goes back to my childhood.  The Carpenters did it in 1971 and it's been a hit for artists throughout the decades.  The Carpenters version is very somber, but then Luther Vandross did it and gave it a smooth R & B vibe.

Last night, Esera Tuaolo did it.  And it was amaaazing.  I got chills. 

This smooth Samoan was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and was a defensive tackle in the NFL for ten years.  He played for the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Atlanta Falcons (who played in the Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos, in a game where Tuaolo made the last tackle of football legend John Elway), and the Carolina Panthers.  He's 6' 4" tall and weighs 300 pounds.  His voice can easily fill a stadium.

He currently resides in Minnesota with his twins Mitchell and Michelle, donates his time as an advocate for the LGBT community, pursues philanthropic work, cooks professionally, and runs an anti-bullying program call Hate in Any Form is Wrong.
